    so do any of us partake in the free bounty on offer at this time of year?

    i keep meaning to make sloe gin, i would love to go mushrooming but just don't trust myself to identify them safely.

    now are there any real adventurous types out there who will tell tales of rabbit and pheasant... or pigeon etc.

    Whilst caching last week I came across loads of sweet chestnuts, the biggest native one that I had ever seen so we have had roasted chestnuts this week
    A while back I made rosehip syrup from rosehips on the roadverge and I always pick blackberries, I have made dandylion wine from dandylions (though my friends call it dog pee wine), i have never picked sloes but keep meaning to, hazel nuts are tasty too

    Dont eat the blackberries on Wimbledon Common, they're quite disgusting, as I found out when caching there.
    The ones on a footpath I took to a local trigpoint are very nice though...
    If there was a competition for witty signatures, I'd come last.

    good year for the sweet chestnuts. if you should be near eastleigh hampshire and do 2tricky you'll find really big ones all along the route. really good size this year.

    Sort of "on Topic":
    I got some "free food" last week...
    On my knees, weeding our flower bed nearest the pavement, I discovered two un-opened cans of Carling
    I've put it down to The Beer Fairy
